I Want To Sell My House Quickly - The Quicker Sale

I Want To Sell My House Quickly

If the statement above really does sum up your circumstances at the moment and you are having no joy through the usual channels within the housing market, you might want to consider another option.

 

For those who are saying “I want to sell my house quick” then it is worth considering the latest statistics in relation to the problems experienced by property sellers.

 

When it can take up to four months or even longer to sell your home in the current economic climate and with mortgages becoming harder to come by, you may find time is passing by while the house is still no closer to a sale.

 

By going to a reputable quick home sale specialist, you can avoid the pitfalls experienced by many homeowners when their house sale falls through.

 

It is a sad fact that around one in three house sales end up falling through before completion and so this can cause a lot of frustration as well as wasted effort for those hoping to move on. The benefits of using a house buying company are manifold.

 

This is because you won’t have to worry about the potential buyer finding it hard to raise enough for a deposit or get turned down for a mortgage at the last minute. The issue of finance can be eliminated as you get a fair price for your property and can obtain straight cash for it instead. Therefore, those declaring “I want to sell my house quickly” can do just that.


Budget 2012: It’s all very confusing, isn’t it?

You won’t be the only person who’s finding it hard to understand the 2012 budget.

 

Tax evasion, stamp duty, child benefits, economic gain… The list of serious sounding words goes on. But the issue we are most concerned about? The housing market. Patrick Kingsley from The Guardian takes us through the coming changes in this quirky little animation.

£10,000 bill after tenant kept a pig in his rented living room

A council is attempting to trace a tenant who caused thousands of pounds of damage to a house after keeping a pig inside the property, reports The Telegraph

 

Housing staff from Derby County Council found the Gloucester Old Spot roaming around the bottom floor of the property in Kingsley Street, Sinfin, Derbsyhire, when they went to evict the tenant following complaints from neighbours. The carpets were muddied and covered in droppings, and rooms were so full of boxes of junk that officials could not get into them. It is thought the pig had been kept at the house for a year.

 

 

Derby Homes, which is responsible for managing council houses in the city, said the cost of repairing the damage caused to the property would be between £10,000 to £15,000. When housing officials and the RSPCA turned up to evict the tenant on March 15 after gaining an eviction notice from court, the tenant took the pig away. Council officials are now trying to trace his whereabouts.

 

 

Maria Murphy, director of housing and customer service at Derby Homes, said: ”This is a disgraceful waste of money, caused by a tenant who failed to show respect for this property or his tenancy agreement. ”On top of the repair costs there is the cost of the office time and legal proceedings in gaining possession of this property.”

The open market is as depressing as ever, but here at The Quicker Sale we remain actively buying homes throughout the UK despite the economic climate.

Solar panels make selling your home even more difficult

One couple signed up for installation in their roof – then found the 25-year lease made it hard to remortgage their home, reports The Guardian.

 

Thousands of households that have solar panel’s installed into their homes could find their properties are unsaleable. Lenders have begun turning down mortgage applications from homeowners who agreed to the energy saving scheme.

 

Guardian Money was contacted by a Southampton couple who were refused by several companies when they tried to remortgage. The refusals were on the basis that they had “agreed to allow a firm to install solar panels on their roof for the duration of a 25-year lease”. Despite their existing mortgage provider agreeing to the scheme, the couple are now worried they won’t be able to sell if potential buyers also struggle to find a loan.

 

Guardian Money believes that their case, which is probably the first of its kind, “threatens the viability of “rent a roof” schemes and could result in a raft of legal disputes.

 

Do you have solar panels installed on your home, or are you just looking to sell your home quickly, hassle free and in as little as seven days? The Quicker Sale remains actively buying houses throughout the UK despite interior and exterior related issues.

Ice-cream business, beach hut, boat and three-bed cottage for sale – all for £675,000

An ice-cream seller is offering his fisherman’s cottage, 1950’s beach hut and ice-cream shop Sundae, Sundae in trendy Whitstable, Kent, all for the bargain price of £675,000.

 

Mr Graham, 57 moved to Whitstable 12 years ago and set up a successful florist’s, before deciding to open “Sundae Sundae” five years ago. Having collected all the components of such a good life by the sea, he thought it was a shame to then break up the picturesque portfolio. According to The Daily Mail, the three properties were put on the market last Friday on the suitably titled website “whitstabledream.com”.

 

Steve has already had dozens of enquiries and has been able to draw up a list of ten ‘serious potential buyers’. It is yet to be revealed who will bag the bargain and ready made perfect lifestyle.

 

Decreasing property prices have plagued the open market since the 2008 recession. Evidently, even Mr Graham has felt the pinch, selling his bundle for far less than the actual value. Are you considering lowering the price of your home to entice potential buyers? The Quicker Sale is an alternate way of selling your house, a guaranteed sale which could see completion in as little as seven days.

Homeowners lower the price of their homes by record amounts

Homeowners are being forced to cut the sale price of their houses by record amounts in order to attract buyers, new figures show.

 

According to The Telegraph, almost four out of ten sellers across the UK cut the asking price of their houses last month. The average price cut was £19,600 which is the highest drop on record, according to Zoopla.co.uk.

 

This is equivalent to 7.5 per cent of the original average asking price of £261,067. The reductions mean that a total of £2.5 billion has been knocked off asking prices in recent weeks as desperate sellers continue to slash prices for the attention of potential buyers. Glasgow tops the list of places where prices have been reduced. Sellers in the city are cutting their prices by an average of 9 per cent.

 

Archer, chief UK and European economist at IHS Global Insight, expects prices to fall by 5 per cent in 2012. “We suspect that low wage growth, rising unemployment and persistent concerns over the economic situation and outlook will limit potential buyers and weigh down on house prices,” said Mr Archer.

 

As UK house prices continue to decrease, along with the number of potential buyers, The Quicker Sale would like to spread the word that the open market is NOT the only way to sell your home.

 

We remain actively buying houses across the UK despite the state of the current economic climate. So if a zero hassle, cash-in-hand sale is what you are after, allow The Quicker Sale to help.

Durham home for sale. Asking price? Just £1

It’s no secret that house prices are rapidly decreasing. But with a two bed end terrace currently up for action at just £501, the chances of selling your home for a fair price are smaller than ever.

 

According to The Guardian “29 Church Street is boarded-up, next to a railway line and with graffiti scrawled across one wall, but the price of a two-bedroom terrace in the county Durham village of Ferryhill is still fairly staggering”.

A small but sturdy redbrick property, “within a short walk of a primary school and shops, a slightly longer one to a sports centre and a couple of miles’ drive to the A1M motorway to Durham and Newcastle-upon-Tyne”, it’s hard to believe it’s owner is willing to simply give it away.

 

Bids started at £1 a month ago and have taken as long to creep into the hundreds. Similar houses in the area sell for around the £20,000, but it seems some homeowners have altogether given up on achieving a fair sale.

“Help – I can’t sell my house in Essex” …But would you lie to do so?

Homeowner sues couple who sold him their Essex home for ‘lying about their neighbour from hell’. However, recent statistics from The Guardian show only 11.1% of the public would fib to seal the deal…

 

Mr Hurst is suing vendors Stuart and Caroline Wilson for damages of £100,000 for purposely ‘misleading’ him about their next-door neighbour.

 

Mr Hurst says he was told by Mrs Wilson that their neighbour, Dominic McGrath, was an old man who tended to keep himself to himself. However Mr McGrath, a piano teacher, had actually been jailed for harassing neighbours in the past and had been given a decade-long Asbo.

 

According to The Daily Mail, Mr McGrath has made the lives of Mr and Mrs Hurst a misery by causing them “serious and prolonged upset, distress, and anxiety.” They even described him as “neighbour from hell”.

UK house prices fall for 21st month in a row

UK house prices fell for the 21st consecutive month in March, research from Knight Frank shows.

 

The house price index, which is based on a nationwide survey of 1,500 households, showed that London was the only region where households felt that the value of their property was higher this month than last.

 

According to PropertyWire, Households in the Midlands and the north of England “expect the price of their homes to fall over the next year”. Gráinne Gilmore, head of UK residential research at Knight Frank explained how trend reflects that seen in the latest unemployment figures, indicating how perceptions of regional employment prospects are interlinked with confidence about the future movement in house prices.

 

 ‘There was a noticeable bounce back in optimism among those working in the banking and financial sectors in March, in contrast to the slump seen in January. This coincides with announcements of bank profits and bonus payments, which, in contrast to speculation in January, were healthier than expected,’ she added.

 

As UK house prices continue to decrease, alongside the number of potential buyers, The Quicker Sale would like to spreadthe word that the open market is NOT the only way to sell your home.
